Sorry -- Creating Option Buttons ... 2nd thread

P: n/a
Ben
Due to problems reading the first thread I started I think I should
respond with a new post. I have been only able to read up to the 2nd
clarification that I posted. Thanks to all who responded. I'll keep
trying to read it.

I really don't wish to waste everyones time by asking you to repost
the stuff I can't read here. I just wish to let you know where I am
at.

In summary. A user creates a show by inputing the name and some basic
info. The next step is that the person creates the events by typing
their names and inouting other basic info such as placings allowed.
This creates the tables. There is a field for each event yes/no that
is used to keep track what events the person is in. I need to make an
entry form. The usual info is inputed such as name. Then their are a
series of check boxes that marks what events the person is in.

I did a bit more research and in another post CreateControl is what I
was told I was looking for. Further research indicated that as I was
told is not the best way to do it because it can cause bloat and an
unstable database that may have to be rebuilt every so often.

So taking Larry advice I thought about it some more.

1) I still do not know the names of the fields the user creates. The
names are based on the name of the events for the show.

2) I still do not know how many. Each show can have a varity of
events.

but
3) there will be an upper realistic number since there are only so
many hours that a show can be run and so only a limited number of
events.

4) if for some reason that the limit I place needs to be exceeded I
can make it very easy for the user to make another show and just
import the needed data.

In that case I believe at this time is to create a number of hidden
check boxes and use VB to reveal them, change the labels and create
the binds to the tables.

Thanks

Ben,

Just wait a while and get back to that thread. This is going to be difficult
for anyone to follow this way, and there's no reason to think this thread
will be readable at a time when that first one's not.

Google's working on the problem, though they won't say what it is, or how
long it will take to fix it.

Jeremy
